The LWT List: Corrie Couples

Corrie has given us far too many couples to cry along with or care about so I thought I’d write about a few of my faves. Because as cheesy as it sounds, isn’t life all about love…

Obviously, there were couples I have missed, but here are the five that automatically sprang to mind…

Strictly: Gangnam style, singing guile and Blackpool in a little while


Another week has been and gone and what a show Saturday night was!

Cleverman: We’re never as clever as we think

The beauty of Cleverman is in it’s simplicity.

Rich v poor

White v black

Indigenous v migrants

Fight v flight

Brother v brother

And that’s where the creators of this show got it spot on because at the centre of the show is something we all relate to; family (Peggy Mitchell voice). Whether you had any or not, it shapes all of us. And that basis is what shines through every one of these characters.
